Acquiring his cue through the wave of Westernization in Japan’s urban music scene, R&B-heavy rapper Seamo got a stab at success in 2004, collaborating using the very popular female hip-hop duo Bennie K (and under a slightly more clichéd name, the “Seamonator”). With solid results in the monitor, Seamo released his debut in 2005, which garnered just mild achievement in the ever-competitive Oricon graphs. After a set of mediocre graph positions for his initial singles, Seamo got a brief break, time for his roots using a Bennie K cooperation. He reached the very best 20, only if briefly, but this got little influence on the achievement of his debut record. 2006 noticed Seamo come back with a fresh one, “Mata Aimashou,” once again cracking the very best 20 It lingered in the graphs with sustained product sales over an extended time frame and even strike several year-end lists in Japan. With developing reputation, Seamo enlisted some better-known superstars for his follow-up record Live CONTINUES ON, which reached the elusive Oricon number 1 position around the week of its launch. 2007’s Cry Baby performed well, nonetheless it was 2008’s Circular About, with a fresh batch of celebrity cameos, that brought Seamo back again onto the graphs highly, peaking at number 2.
